Submission to Lord Mr Smith

1 Nov

Dear Lord Mr. Smith,


You a Lord and me just a common man

I am thankit that you let me offer my humble plan

You see, all I want, your Lordship, as best a can

In my wee-way to let you try to understand

How we ‘poor -auld- dugs’ feel in these present days

And view the future from our humble ways.


All I ask you is this: ‘gie us mair fkn po’er’

No just for MPs an that but fur we, the poor!

Who live each day and nicht afraid o hunger

Who fear the comin, cauld dreich winter

We doan get thousands for sittin on boards

We doan get 300 a day like youz in Lords

That is mair than a weeks pension fur me an the wife

Tae heat, tae feed, ti live half a life

She still cleans flairs for an extra pund

I grow some tatties in some stoney grund

But that is no how man should hae tae be

Day by day struggle… persistant poverty!


Its no Fn right! Something wrong!

It been like this up here too fn long!

This isnie 1914 wi “Yes Sir fur the shillin, thanks”

Its 2014 and bloody food banks!

We want the power tae change awe that

Real power down here where life is hard

Power to change the entire equation

Bring sovereignty tae our nation

Turn the whole thing upside down

Gi us a pension o 300 pound,


Nae House a Lords tae decide for we

What is needed in Dundee

But gie the poor power tae mak decisions

We have ideas! We have visions

To mak a new Scotland fair, with dignity

I submit this tae you, wi nae humility!

But tae Mr Smith in desperation

Save the poor in this new nation!

If No? Lord Smith F-off

Leave us. Your Lordship Toff!

PS Do you think today that it is right

that you a lord, unelected tae shite

should sit in judgement on our hopes

and we sit writing you begging notes?

I wish you luck!

Otherwise GTF!
